From 1987-2001 Brockton rap group Trech Emcees were known for throwing parties highlighted by their live performances. Original members Steve 'Sandman' Dunn, Gary 'McWop' Dunn and DJ/MC Mike Angelo joined to form 3 Trech MC's in 1987. MC Mike had the trio's biggest hit in 1989 with Rip Dip Daddy. CEO Steve Dunn left the group in 1992 and was replaced behind the turntables by DJ Brian Slay. By 2001, plagued by constant line-up changes and mounting legal issues, Trech Emcees were officially disbanded as rapper Gary Dunn 'retired' to Arizona.
